Pros: - New cooler design - ACX 3.0
- Updated display connectors; DP1.4 and HDMI 2.0b
- Handles any resolution with ease; 1080P, 1440P, 4K, 21:9, and 24:9.
- Quiet, even under load.
- Stock fan profile keeps card in mid to high 70's.
- New features: HDR, SMP, etc...
Cons: - Stuck with white LEDs on this model. RGB LEDs only available on FTW and Classified models.
- I don't like having to enter info/card serial # in Precision XOC just to use the software.
Other Thoughts: If your curious where I got the 24:9 resolution from, I use custom resolutions on a 40" 4K HDR TV. For FPS games, 3840x1440 (34" 24:9) is my favorite resolution . But I also game at 4k and 3840x1646 (38' 21:9).
Even if you don't want to overclock, I'd highly recommend using EVGA Precision XOC to make a custom fan profile and to slide the sliders for Power and Temp all the way to the right. This gives the card more room to work with and will give you a nice increase in the card's boost. Plus, the card will run even cooler, and this is technically not a overclock.
This review is from: Samsung UN40KU6300FXZA 40-Inch 2160p 4K UHD Smart LED TV - Black (2016)
Pros: - Colors and Blacks are very good .
- Sound is way better than expected.
- Supports Chroma 4:4:4 and RGB Full dynamic range color formats.
- Upscaling works great.
- Supports custom resolutions at 60 Hz with RGB Full and Chroma 4:4:4.
- No noticeable delay or lag when gaming.
- After tweaking the color profile, I can't see any difference in color between it and my IPS monitor.
Cons: - Colors out of box are good, but not perfect. Plenty of options for adjusting though.
- Panel feels fragile to the touch. TV overall is solid. The screen just feels like it needs a piece of glass over it.
- When first connected to the PC it was a little stubborn about going into RGB Full Range Mode. But it worked after a few tries.
- Sound will get distorted if turned too loud. But it gets pretty loud before it distorts.
- I've noticed some vertical ghosting when scrolling on web pages, but not in games or watching TV.
- Panel is only 8-bit. So HDR is not as good as on a 10-bit panel.
- Smart Remote seems to quit working sometimes. Just have to pop off cover and remove battery and reinstall.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a great budget 4K TV and gaming monitor. This is the third model I've tried. And it's the only one that's been good enough in this price range to replace my three monitor surround setup. For gaming I've tried 1080, 4K, 3840 x 1440 (35" 24:9), and 3840 x 1646 (38" 21:9). Both custom resolutions run at 60 Hz in RGB Full or Chroma 4:4:4 color profiles. However, if your not on a budget, I'd recommend stepping up to one of the Samsung K series in the 8000 or 9000 models to get a 10-bit IPS panel.
One little note of caution, as stated in 'Cons' the panel does appear to be fragile. My first one did arrive with a broken screen. Newegg replaced it with out question. Just know if you get a broken one you might have to wait a week or two for the replacement. This and Smart Remote issue are the only reasons I didn't give it 5 stars.
NOTE: If you are having trouble using Chroma 4:4:4 or RGB Full Range mode on a PC with this TV. Check the menu under "Sources" and make sure it is seeing the connection as "PC". UHD Color should work when the source is "PC". But "Game Mode" should not be available. When "PC" is configured correctly as the source, anything that causes issue with response time will be disabled; effectively making this just a monitor. Thus, having the same affect as "Game Mode" when you have a console connected to the TV. RGB Full mode and Chroma 4:4:4 should then be available in the Nvidia Control Panel or in AMD's Crimson software on your computer. RGB - Full Dynamic Range is the standard color format for computer monitors and in my opinion should be your first choice when connected to a computer. However, Chroma 4:4:4 which is a color format for TV's should show little or no difference if RGB Full is not an option. Firmware/Software updates for this TV may effect how these settings work. Since I don't use the Smart TV software, and everything is working great. I haven't bothered to update from version 1104.
This review is from: VIZIO M43-C1 43-Inch 2160p 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV - Black
Pros: - Great upscaling for 720 and 1080 content.
- 120Hz at 1080 for gaming.
- Colors are good out of the box, but not perfect.
- Plenty of options in menu for color calibration.
- Decent speakers for TV and gaming.
- Supports RGB, Chroma 4:4:4, & Chroma 4:2:2, but limited by resolution and refresh rate.
Cons: - Using direct cable hook up, 480 content looks horrible.
- 4K 60Hz is only supported in Chroma 4:2:2.
- Limited refresh rates and color formats.
- No option to disconnect wireless connectivity in menu.
- Chroma 4:4:4 does not pass the 4:4:4 test pictures.
- Custom resolutions only run at 30Hz.
- Using as a monitor, text only looks good in RGB or 4:4:4 which limits you to 30Hz.
Other Thoughts: All said and done, this is a great TV if you are subscribed to HD cable. Unfortunately, most of my channels are still at 480i which look horrible. This unit is fine for gaming if your not sensitive to a little ghosting. Response time is somewhere between 18 and 25ms. So lag is not an issue when "Game Low Latency" is enabled. If this TV would at least support 4K and custom resolutions at 60Hz in RGB color mode, I'd be happy with it. One last note, the firmware needs updated out of the box which requires it to be connected to the internet. If your not planning on using the SMART functions. Make sure you allow it to update and then reset it before doing any color calibration. The only way to disconnect it from WiFi is to reset the TV or change your password on your router.READ FULL REVIEW
